This makes me sad he was in some movies that I fallen in love with over the years. i.e. The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Home Alone 1 & 2, Baby's Day Out (yes I admit it!), Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Beethoven (writer) and even Drillbit Taylor.
He had a fantastic way of merging comedy, some really tender moments and creating movies that stay with you and never lose that special place in your heart.
This guy was a talented man and I respected him so, so much. R.I.P. John, you will be missed so much (thank you for the wonderful memories). Always be in our hearts.
